Edmonton, Alberta (Canada): The Fight Club (TFC), one of the top fight promotions in Canada, is proud to bring MMA fans “DEVASTATION” on Friday, December 10th, live from the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The event will feature ten bouts including two TFC Title fights featuring several top MMA superstars, including former TFC World Light-Heavyweight Champion Victor Valimaki, top TFC middleweight contenders Cody Krahn & Chase Dagenhardt, and top Welterweight contenders Sheldon Westcott , Jordan McKay & Rio Wells.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, or (780) 991-5670.
The co-main event will feature Edmonton, Alberta native Cody “Genghis” Krahn (9-2) taking on Chase Dagenhardt (8-1), who hails from Lethbridge, Alberta, for the vacant TFC Canadian Middleweight Title. Krahn, who has won six straight to earn his shot at the TFC title, including a first round KO over Jason Gorny at TFC 9 Total Chaos in December of last year, will be facing his toughest test in the highly touted Chase Dagenhardt.
